A Treatment for Osteoporosis That Was Proven to Decrease the Chance of Having A Fracture of the Spine and Other Bones in Postmenopausal Women

TYMLOS is a prescription medicine used to:

  • decrease the chance of having a fracture of the spine and other bones in postmenopausal women with thinning and weakening bones (osteoporosis).
  • treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women who are at high risk for bone fracture.

If you’ve had a fracture from osteoporosis, you’re not alone

Half of all women over 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis at some point in their lives. Once you have had an osteoporosis-related fracture, your chance of having another is 6X higher. Fortunately, there is an option available to treat osteoporosis in women at high risk for fracture.

TYMLOS is a prescription medicine that was proven to lower the risk of fractures of the spine and other bones* in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at 18 months of treatment.

*Fractures of the breast bone, kneecap, toes, fingers, skull and face, and those associated with high trauma were not included.

Who is at high risk for fracture? Women who:

  • have had an osteoporotic fracture
  • have other risk factors such as tobacco use, alcohol use (more than 2 drinks per day), a family history of osteoporosis, or taking other drugs which could affect bone health
  • did not do well on, or could not tolerate other osteoporosis medications
